Boy do I wish I had some holiday not yet used up. I would book a half day on Friday if I could. Next year, I am going to book off 20 half days right away. Starting November 27th, I will have a half day every other week on Fridays. That only uses up 10 days of leave, so it’s pretty minimal cost for a hefty benefit. I’ll book a few 3 day weekends and my birthday week too, and keep it to that. That should do my fatigue a lot of work.
The good news is that my writing doesn’t appear to be suffering from my lack of sleep of late. I keep staying up far too late, and that is making my brain sluggish. Even so, I am doing better than I would expect to after three days in a row of sub 8-hours. Even so, my work will need a lot of rewriting. I hope I can finish the book by the end of the month so I can spend a week doing just that.
My top priority tonight needs to be to sleep on time. I can’t get by on another bad night, not least as Thursday is by far my worst day. For now I’m going to plough through as many work tasks as I can before my brain melts.
